The Ask Phoenix thread

Like Tree76Likes

Anything you'd recommend for really sensitive but also really oily skin? It would be nice to wear makeup and end up without the really red burning feeling in my skin, or break out for the next week. >.<

My skin is an oxymoron, I think.

Bekka, do you want black, very black, or brown-black, if I find it? Also, how many tubes? Does it come in waterproof, and if so, do you want that type?

I'll be there Saturday.

Ms. Phoenix, what do you think of the brow-buddy contraption? Do you think it would work for someone somewhat hapless, like me?
Oh might Phoenix, please I need a recommendation for a mascara that's like Maybelline Full n Soft.. they don't seem to sell it anymore. I haven't found it in years. And I hate that Maybelline (Great Lash my azz) in the pink tube. That stuff is always gunky on me..

..help.

Sorry to interrupt, P. Is there something like Full n Soft that you like?

I found Dior Show gloppy. I think it came in brown, though, which I liked.

Bekka, if they don't have waterproof, do you still want it?
Sure.. regular is fine too.

And yes, I did mean foundation.
